Newly refurbished twelve bedroom Freehold house.
Eccleston Square is a tranquil oasis in the heart of Central London. The lush, beautifully maintained private communal garden in the center of the square has its own tennis court, playground and BBQ area.
It is surrounded by grand white stucco terraces built in the 1820s by Thomas Cubitt, the famous architect of Eaton Square, Belgrave square and the east front of Buckingham Palace.
The location offers easy access to a great choice of excellent restaurants, cafes and shops of Belgravia and Chelsea, the scenic footpaths of St James, Battersea and Hyde parks and the iconic landmarks of Westminster.
Many of the best private schools in London - Westminster School, Eaton Square School, Sussex House, Francis Holland, Garden House, Hill House and Westminster Cathedral School - are but a short walk away.
Transport is convenient via Victoria Station which has a main line, underground and bus service as well as the Gatwick Express, a 30-minute train to Gatwick airport.
This grand, elegant and newly refurbished freehold is incredibly spacious (over 7,226 sq ft). Impressive ceiling heights, large open lateral spaces, generously-sized terraces and access to well-maintained private communal gardens make it truly unique.
Oversized windows and sky lights fill this magnificent home with light throughout the year. Located right in the middle of a private garden square it has access to the garden’s tennis court, BBQ area and playground. With no other buildings facing it, the house is very private and quiet, offering spectacular open views in all directions.
This historic building has been completely renovated to the highest standard. All the internal walls, electrical systems and plumbing have been replaced with modern, eco-friendly materials. Meticulously restored original details juxtapose beautifully with contemporary design featuring the latest technologies, such as the Nest “smart home” system, Sonos sound surround system and Gauganeau appliances.
Other luxurious features include Marazzi marble bathrooms with Lusso stone sinks and bath tubs, natural oak herringbone parquet floors with under-floor heating, bespoke joinery and curtains and glass balustraded staircases. The main kitchen is particularly spectacular with a full-glass 4.5m-high ceiling, bespoke Jackson Pine joinery, Gaggenau appliances with two refrigerators and two full-size ovens and charcoal granite worktop with mirror splash back.
The house offers uniquely versatile space: It can be enjoyed as a luxurious one-family home or used as up to five separate apartments. It comprises twelve bedrooms, eleven bathrooms, five kitchens, eight living rooms, two guest toilets, a children’s TV/play room, an office, two terraces and a roof deck. There is also a large laundry room, two storage vaults and two separate street entrances.
The ground floor is an open-plan family common space with a large living room, dining room, kitchen and powder room. There is also a very private large principal bedroom with en-suite bathroom and walk-in closet.
The first floor was designed for elegant entertainment. It is a grand open space with 3.7m-high ceilings with elaborate original ceiling roses and cornices, a garden-facing balcony on one side and a large terrace on the other. It also has an office with direct access to the terrace and a guest toilet.
The other four floors comprise the remaining eleven bedrooms, ten bathrooms, four living rooms and four kitchens.
This exceptional property is a spacious and luxurious Central London family home. There is very little locally that may compare with it.
